All my experiences will always be with me
The good, the bad, the ugly – if I was to judge them and label them

There was a time when I was so enmeshed in my stuff
That was all I knew
They controlled me – especially when my buttons were pushed

Open to new experiences – no I will call them ‘life’s adventures’
I had no idea what was SO deeply buried
Though long before the adventures began

Shock and surprise filled me
Upon the ‘Poor Me’ discovery
Within a split second I knew
Living from that place was no longer acceptable


Emotion rises and bubbles
The pain of loss unbearable
Deep breaths ease the agony
Into the present where the tide subsides

Surrender full to ALL the pain
Physical, emotional, mental and spiritual
Immediate softening, letting go
Relief cascades internally and externally
